In 1990, Fr. Michael Lapsley, an Anglican priest active in the struggle against apartheid in South Africa, opened a letter bomb that nearly killed him. Though he survived, the blast took both his hands and one of his eyes. This memoir tells the story of this horrendous event, beginning with the journey that led him there--particularly his rising awareness of the radical demands of the gospel and his growing identification with the freedom struggle.

But that was not the end of his inspiring journey. In post-apartheid South Africa, Lapsley saw a whole nation in need of healing from trauma both physical and spiritual. He discovered a new vocation: drawing on his own experience of trauma to promote the healing of others, in South Africa, and ultimately throughout the world, in the international Institute for the Healing of Memories.



Michael Lapsley, born in New Zealand, became an Anglican priest in the Society of the Sacred Mission, and was sent to South Africa in 1973. There he became active in the antiapartheid movement, ultimately joining the African National Congress. After surviving an assassination attempt while living in Zimbabwe, he returned to South Africa to found the Institute for the Healing of Memories.

Stephen Karakashian is an American psychotherapist who has worked with Father Michael and the institute for the Healing of Memories in South Africa and the United States. He lives in Portland, Oregon
